1895 Newspaper report on a new stained glass window!!
Found on the online newspaper archives in an 1895 Grantham Journal, Saturday 9th November. The article mentions a new stained glass window which has been installed in All Saint’s church, Stamford, Lincolnshire. It is a window in memory of Orlando and Mary Edmonds and can be found in the East end of the south aisle. It was gifted by the family of the late Mrs Edmonds and was dedicated on All Saint’s day. Although the newspaper article does not mention an artists name, we know from the faculty papers to be found in the Lincolnshire County Archives that the window was made by the company Heaton, Butler and Bayne, a wonderfully telented and prolific company, who have created several other windows in this church.
